Is There More Than One Way?

There are a lot of churches out there, and a lot of different beliefs too.  I am sure there are a lot of questions about which way is the right way and which church is the right church.  Well, I am not going to touch on the church subject because if we touch on the Right Way, you can decide for yourself about the church question.

Jesus said in John 14;6  "I am the way, the truth and the life, No one comes to the Father except through me."

Anything that Jesus did or taught would be called the Right Way, wouldn't it?  So to test whether we are in the Right Way, just follow Jesus example and we will be in the Right Way.

Jesus also said in Matthew 7:21  "Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom of heaven but he who does the will of My Father in heaven."  This is another way to know if we are in the Right Way, those who do the will of the Father in heaven.  So if we are in God's will, we are also in the Right Way.

If we follow Jesus and listen to His counsel, we can't go wrong, can we?  I don't believe we can.  He has a warning for us in Matthew 7:15  "Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves."  Who would be a false prophet in sheep's clothing?  I believe it would be someone who is teaching something that the Bible doesn't teach, don't you think so.  That seems logical to me.  They would pretend to be ministers of the gospel, and yet ignore Jesus teaching of the gospel.

There is also a Wrong Way and Jesus speaks of that too, in Matthew 7:13  "Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it."  Many are entering the wrong gate or Wrong Way and are headed for destruction.

There are two ways, the Right Way and the Wrong Way and we are well warned about the Wrong Way and the Right Way, we are well taught what that is too.  What is the solution of making sure we are in the Right Way?  As always, the solution is the same, stay close to Jesus, study His word and we will be safely in the Right Way.  Don't listen to those ravenous wolves who dress up in sheep's clothing trying to fool us and lead us down the Wrong Way to perdition.  Be careful my friend the warning is clear and we need to listen, it was given for a purpose, and that purpose was to help us keep our eyes fixed on Jesus so we don't slip into the Wrong Path to destruction.  Just stay close to Jesus, in His presence day by day and you will have no worries about which path is Right or Wrong, the path to heaven is clear and plain but the Bible says few will find it in Matthew 7:14.  Don't be discouraged by the word 'few', we can be among the 'few' who follow the narrow path to the kingdom.  I don't want to go down the wrong path, do you?  I'm sure that you don't and we don't have to.  It is our choice.  What will be your choice.  God has planned that all should be saved, but because He is a God of love, He has left the decision up to us. My prayer for you is that you will please choose Jesus.  Grandma Joan
